    $\begingroup$ Whales are mammals, not fishes - calling a large fish a whale is just wrong (and of course the confusingly named whale shark is not a whale at all). Sharks are fishes, but they are a separate category of fishes from the rest. There are both large and small sharks. The smallest ones are only ~20cm, which probably makes them smaller than what you typically think of when you think of "fish". $\endgroup$ – Bryan Krause Jul 24 '17 at 15:05

That is a Queensland Grouper (common name).

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Stack Exchange! When you reach 50 reputation points you can leave comments on other people's posts. There's a fairly high bar for posting answers, and as the other comment mentions, adding supporting sources is always a good idea and almost always necessary here. Don't worry about the negative voting so much, but if you can explain what it is that leads you to this conclusion, that would be better. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Nov 13 '18 at 7:20
